  1. Sura: 2 - al-Baqara (The Cow) Ayat: 201

    وَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ يَقُولُ رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ (201

    اور بعض کہتے ہیں کہ پروردگار ہمیں دنیا میں بھی نیکی عطا فرما اورآخرت میں بھی اور ہم کو عذاب جہّنم سے محفوظ فرما

    [YOUSAF ALI] And there are men who say: "Our Lord! Give us good in this world and good in the Hereafter, and defend us from the torment of the Fire!"

    [ PICKTHAL ] And of them (also) is he who saith: "Our Lord! Give unto us in the world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and guard us from the doom of Fire."

    [ SHAKIR ] And there are some among them who say: Our Lord! grant us good in this world and good in the hereafter, and save us from the chastisement of the fire.

  2. Sura: 5 - al-Maaida (The Table) Ayat: 5

    الْيَوْمَ أُحِلَّ لَكُمُ الطَّيِّبَاتُ ۖ وَطَعَامُ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ حِلٌّ لَكُمْ وَطَعَامُكُمْ حِلٌّ لَهُمْ ۖ وَالْمُحْصَنَاتُ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ وَالْمُحْصَنَاتُ مِنَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ إِذَا آتَيْتُمُوهُنَّ أُجُورَهُنَّ مُحْصِنِينَ غَيْرَ مُسَافِحِينَ وَلَا مُتَّخِذِي أَخْدَانٍ ۗ وَمَنْ يَكْفُرْ بِالْإِيمَانِ فَقَدْ حَبِطَ عَمَلُهُ وَهُوَ فِي الْآخِرَةِ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ (5

    آج تمہارے لئے تمام پاکیزہ چیزیں حلال کردی گئی ہیں اور اہلِ کتاب کا طعام بھی تمہارے لئے حلال ہے اور تمہارا طعام ان کے لئے حلال ہے اور اہلِ ایمان کی آزاد اور پاک دامن عورتیں یا ان کی آزاد عورتیں جن کو تم سے پہلے کتاب دی گئی ہے تمہارے لئے حلال ہے بشرطیکہ تم ان کی اجرت دے دو پاکیزگی کے ساتھ -نہ کھّلم کھلاّ زنا کی اجرت کے طور پر اور نہ پوشیدہ طور پر دوستی کے انداز سے اور جو بھی ایمان سے انکار کرے گا اس کے اعمال یقینا برباد ہوجائیں گے اور وہ آخرت میں گھاٹا اُٹھانے والوں میں ہوگا

    [YOUSAF ALI] This day are (all) things good and pure made lawful unto you. The food of the People of the Book is lawful unto you and yours is lawful unto them. (Lawful unto you in marriage) are (not only) chaste women who are believers, but chaste women among the People of the Book, revealed before your time,- when ye give them their due dowers, and desire chastity, not lewdness, nor secret intrigues if any one rejects faith, fruitless is his work, and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (all spiritual good).

    [ PICKTHAL ] This day are (all) good things made lawful for you. The food of those who have received the Scripture is lawful for you, and your food is lawful for them. And so are the virtuous women of the believers and the virtuous women of those who received the Scripture before you (lawful for you) when ye give them their marriage portions and live with them in honour, not in fornication, nor taking them as secret concubines. Whoso denieth the faith, his work is vain and he will be among the losers in the Hereafter.

    [ SHAKIR ] This day (all) the good things are allowed to you; and the food of those who have been given the Book is lawful for you and your food is lawful for them; and the chaste from among the believing women and the chaste from among those who have been given the Book before you (are lawful for you); when you have given them their dowries, taking (them) in marriage, not fornicating nor taking them for paramours in secret; and whoever denies faith, his work indeed is of no account, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.

  3. Sura: 6 - al-An`aam (The Cattle) Ayat: 165

    وَهُوَ الَّذِي جَعَلَكُمْ خَلَائِفَ الْأَرْضِ وَرَفَعَ بَعْضَكُمْ فَوْقَ بَعْضٍ دَرَجَاتٍ لِيَبْلُوَكُمْ فِي مَا آتَاكُمْ ۗ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ سَرِيعُ الْعِقَابِ وَإِنَّهُ لَغَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ (165

    وہی وہ خدا ہے جس نے تم کو زمین میں نائب بنایا اور بعض کے درجات کو بعض سے بلند کیا تاکہ تمہیں اپنے دئیے ہوئے سے آزمائے -تمہارا پروردگار بہت جلد حساب کرنے والا ہے اور وہ بیشک بہت بخشنے والا مہربان ہے

    [YOUSAF ALI] It is He Who hath made you (His) agents, inheritors of the earth: He hath raised you in ranks, some above others: that He may try you in the gifts He hath given you: for thy Lord is quick in punishment: yet He is indeed Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

    [ PICKTHAL ] He it is Who hath placed you as viceroys of the earth and hath exalted some of you in rank above others, that He may try you by (the test of) that which He hath given you. Lo! Thy Lord is swift in prosecution, and Lo! He verily is Forgiving, Merciful.

    [ SHAKIR ] And He it is Who has made you successors in the land and raised some of you above others by (various) grades, that He might try you by what He has given you; surely your Lord is quick to requite (evil), and He is most surely the Forgiving, the Merciful.

  4. Sura: 7 - al-A`araaf (The Heights) Ayat: 32

    قُلْ مَنْ حَرَّمَ زِينَةَ اللَّهِ الَّتِي أَخْرَجَ لِعِبَادِهِ وَالطَّيِّبَاتِ مِنَ الرِّزْقِ ۚ قُلْ هِيَ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا خَالِصَةً يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ ۗ كَذَٰلِكَ نُفَصِّلُ الْآيَاتِ لِقَوْمٍ يَعْلَمُونَ (32

    پیغمبر آپ پوچھئے کہ کس نے اس زینت کو جس کو خدا نے اپنے بندوں کے لئے پیدا کیا ہے اور پاکیزہ رزق کو حرام کردیا ہے ... اور بتائیے کہ یہ چیزیں روزِ قیامت صرف ان لوگوں کے لئے ہیں جو زندگانی دنیا میں ایمان لائے ہیں .ہم اسی طرح صاحبان هعلم کے لئے مفصل آیات بیان کرتے ہیں

    [YOUSAF ALI] Say: Who hath forbidden the beautiful (gifts) of Allah, which He hath produced for His servants, and the things, clean and pure, (which He hath provided) for sustenance? Say: They are, in the life of this world, for those who believe, (and) purely for them on the Day of Judgment. Thus do We explain the signs in detail for those who understand.

    [ PICKTHAL ] Say: Who hath forbidden the adornment of Allah which He hath brought forth for His bondmen, and the good things of His providing? Say: Such, on the Day of Resurrection, will be only for those who believed during the life of the world. Thus do we detail Our revelations for people who have knowledge.

    [ SHAKIR ] Say: Who has prohibited the embellishment of Allah which He has brought forth for His servants and the good provisions? Say: These are for the believers in the life of this world, purely (theirs) on the resurrection day; thus do We make the communications clear for a people who know.

  5. Sura: 7 - al-A`araaf (The Heights) Ayat: 157

    الَّذِينَ يَتَّبِعُونَ الرَّسُولَ النَّبِيَّ الْأُمِّيَّ الَّذِي يَجِدُونَهُ مَكْتُوبًا عِنْدَهُمْ فِي التَّوْرَاةِ وَالْإِنْجِيلِ يَأْمُرُهُمْ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَاهُمْ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَيُحِلُّ لَهُمُ الطَّيِّبَاتِ وَيُحَرِّمُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْخَبَائِثَ وَيَضَعُ عَنْهُمْ إِصْرَهُمْ وَالْأَغْلَالَ الَّتِي كَانَتْ عَلَيْهِمْ ۚ فَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا بِهِ وَعَزَّرُوهُ وَنَصَرُوهُ وَاتَّبَعُوا النُّورَ الَّذِي أُنْزِلَ مَعَهُ ۙ أُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَ (157

    جو لوگ کہ رسولِ نبی امّی کا اتباع کرتے ہیں جس کا ذکر اپنے پاس توریت اور انجیل میں لکھا ہوا پاتے ہیں کہ وہ نیکیوں کا حکم دیتا ہے اور برائیوں سے روکتا ہے اور پاکیزہ چیزوں کو حلال قرار دیتاہے اور خبیث چیزوں کو حرام قرار دیتا ہے اور ان پر سے احکام کے سنگین بوجھ اور قیدوبند کو اٹھا دیتا ہے پس جو لوگ اس پر ایمان لائے اس کا احترام کیا اس کی امداد کی اور اس نور کا اتباع کیا جو اس کے ساتھ نازل ہوا ہے وہی درحقیقت فلاح یافتہ اور کامیاب ہیں

    [YOUSAF ALI] "Those who follow the messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own (scriptures),- in the law and the Gospel;- for he commands them what is just and forbids them what is evil; he allows them as lawful what is good (and pure) and prohibits them from what is bad (and impure); He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. So it is those who believe in him, honour him, help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him,- it is they who will prosper."

    [ PICKTHAL ] Those who follow the messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write, whom they will find described in the Torah and the Gospel (which are) with them. He will enjoin on them that which is right and forbid them that which is wrong. He will make lawful for them all good things and prohibit for them only the foul; and he will relieve them of their burden and the fetters that they used to wear. Then those who believe in him, and honour him, and help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him: they are the successful.

    [ SHAKIR ] Those who follow the Messenger-Prophet, the Ummi, whom they find written down with them in the Taurat and the Injeel (who) enjoins them good and forbids them evil, and makes lawful to them the good things and makes unlawful to them impure things, and removes from them their burden and the shackles which were upon them; so (as for) those who believe in him and honor him and help him, and follow the light which has been sent down with him, these it is that are the successful.

  6. Sura: 10 - Yunus (Jonas) From Ayat: 7 to 8

    إِنَّ الَّذِينَ لَا يَرْجُونَ لِقَاءَنَا وَرَضُوا بِالْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَاطْمَأَنُّوا بِهَا وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ عَنْ آيَاتِنَا غَافِلُونَ (7

    یقینا جو لوگ ہماری ملاقات کی امید نہیں رکھتے ہیں اور زندگانی دنیا پر ہی راضی اور مطمئن ہوگئے ہیں اور جو لوگ ہماری آیات سے غافل ہیں

    [YOUSAF ALI] Those who rest not their hope on their meeting with Us, but are pleased and satisfied with the life of the present, and those who heed not Our Signs,-

    [ PICKTHAL ] Lo! those who expect not the meeting with Us but desire the life of the world and feel secure therein, and those who are neglectful of Our revelations,

    [ SHAKIR ] Surely those who do not hope in Our meeting and are pleased with this world's life and are content with it, and those who are heedless of Our communications:

  7. Sura: 10 - Yunus (Jonas) From Ayat: 7 to 8

    أُولَٰئِكَ مَأْوَاهُمُ النَّارُ بِمَا كَانُوا يَكْسِبُونَ (8

    یہ سب وہ ہیں جن کے اعمال کی بنا پر ان کا ٹھکانا جہّنم ہے

    [YOUSAF ALI] Their abode is the Fire, because of the (evil) they earned.

    [ PICKTHAL ] Their home will be the Fire because of what they used to earn.

    [ SHAKIR ] (As for) those, their abode is the fire because of what they earned.

  8. Sura: 18 - al-Kahf (The Cave) Ayat: 28

    وَاصْبِرْ نَفْسَكَ مَعَ الَّذِينَ يَدْعُونَ رَبَّهُمْ بِالْغَدَاةِ وَالْعَشِيِّ يُرِيدُونَ وَجْهَهُ ۖ وَلَا تَعْدُ عَيْنَاكَ عَنْهُمْ تُرِيدُ زِينَةَ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا ۖ وَلَا تُطِعْ مَنْ أَغْفَلْنَا قَلْبَهُ عَنْ ذِكْرِنَا وَاتَّبَعَ هَوَاهُ وَكَانَ أَمْرُهُ فُرُطًا (28

    اور اپنے نفس کو ان لوگوں کے ساتھ صبر پر آمادہ کرو جو صبح و شام اپنے پروردگار کو پکارتے ہیں اور اسی کی مرضی کے طلب گار ہیں اور خبردار تمہاری نگاہیں ان کی طرف سے پھر نہ جائیں کہ زندگانی دنیا کی زینت کے طلب گار بن جاؤ اور ہرگز اس کی اطاعت نہ کرنا جس کے قلب کو ہم نے اپنی یاد سے محروم کردیا ہے اور وہ اپنی خواہشات کا پیروکار ہے اور اس کا کام سراسر زیادتی کرنا ہے

    [YOUSAF ALI] And keep thy soul content with those who call on their Lord morning and evening, seeking His Face; and let not thine eyes pass beyond them, seeking the pomp and glitter of this Life; no obey any whose heart We have permitted to neglect the remembrance of Us, one who follows his own desires, whose case has gone beyond all bounds.

    [ PICKTHAL ] Restrain thyself along with those who cry unto their Lord at morn and evening, seeking His Countenance; and let not thine eyes overlook them, desiring the pomp of the life of the world; and obey not him whose heart We have made heedless of Our remembrance, who followeth his own lust and whose case hath been abandoned.

    [ SHAKIR ] And withhold yourself with those who call on their Lord morning and evening desiring His goodwill, and let not your eyes pass from them, desiring the beauties of this world's life; and do not follow him whose heart We have made unmindful to Our remembrance, and he follows his low desires and his case is one in which due bounds are exceeded.

  9. Sura: 22 - al-Hajj (The Pilgrimage) Ayat: 78


    اور اللہ کے بارے میں اس طرح جہاد کرو جو جہاد کرنے کا حق ہے کہ اس نے تمہیں منتخب کیا ہے اور دین میں کوئی زحمت نہیں قرار دی ہے یہی تمہارے بابا ابراہیم علیہ السّلام کا دین ہے اس نے تمہارا نام پہلے بھی اور اس قرآن میں بھی مسلم اور اطاعت گزار رکھا ہے تاکہ رسولؐ تمہارے اوپر گواہ رہے اور تم لوگوں کے اعمال کے گواہ رہو لہذا اب تم نماز قائم کرو زکوِٰ اداکرو اور اللہ سے باقاعدہ طور پر وابستہ ہوجاؤ کہ وہی تمہارا مولا ہے اور وہی بہترین مولا اور بہترین مددگار ہے

    [YOUSAF ALI] And strive in His cause as ye ought to strive, (with sincerity and under discipline). He has chosen you, and has imposed no difficulties on you in religion; it is the cult of your father Abraham. It is He Who has named you Muslims, both before and in this (Revelation); that the Messenger may be a witness for you, and ye be witnesses for mankind! So establish regular Prayer, give regular Charity, and hold fast to Allah! He is your Protector - the Best to protect and the Best to help!

    [ PICKTHAL ] And strive for Allah with the endeavour which is His right. He hath chosen you and hath not laid upon you in religion any hardship; the faith of your father Abraham (is yours). He hath named you Muslims of old time and in this (Scripture), that the messenger may be a witness against you, and that ye may be witnesses against mankind. So establish worship, pay the poor-due, and hold fast to Allah. He is your Protecting friend. A blessed Patron and a blessed Helper!

    [ SHAKIR ] And strive hard in (the way of) Allah, (such) a striving a is due to Him; He has chosen you and has not laid upon you an hardship in religion; the faith of your father Ibrahim; He named you Muslims before and in this, that the Messenger may be a bearer of witness to you, and you may be bearers of witness to the people; therefore keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate and hold fast by Allah; He is your Guardian; how excellent the Guardian and how excellent the Helper!

  10. Sura: 24 - an-Noor (The Light) Ayat: 3

    الزَّانِي لَا يَنْكِحُ إِلَّا زَانِيَةً أَوْ مُشْرِكَةً وَالزَّانِيَةُ لَا يَنْكِحُهَا إِلَّا زَانٍ أَوْ مُشْرِكٌ ۚ وَحُرِّمَ ذَٰلِكَ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (3

    زانی مرد اور زانیہ یا مشرکہ عورت ہی سے نکاح کرے گا اور زانیہ عورت زانی مرد یا مشرک مرد ہی سے نکاح کرے گی کہ یہ صاحبان هایمان پر حرام ہیں

    [YOUSAF ALI] Let no man guilty of adultery or fornication marry and but a woman similarly guilty, or an Unbeliever: nor let any but such a man or an Unbeliever marry such a woman: to the Believers such a thing is forbidden.

    [ PICKTHAL ] The adulterer shall not marry save an adulteress or an idolatress, and the adulteress none shall marry save an adulterer or an idolater. All that is forbidden unto believers.

    [ SHAKIR ] The fornicator shall not marry any but a fornicatress or idolatress, and (as for) the fornicatress, none shall marry her but a fornicator or an idolater; and it is forbidden to the believers.

  11. Sura: 28 - al-Qasas (The Stories) Ayat: 77

    وَابْتَغِ فِيمَا آتَاكَ اللَّهُ الدَّارَ الْآخِرَةَ ۖ وَلَا تَنْسَ نَصِيبَكَ مِنَ الدُّنْيَا ۖ وَأَحْسِنْ كَمَا أَحْسَنَ اللَّهُ إِلَيْكَ ۖ وَلَا تَبْغِ الْفَسَادَ فِي الْأَرْضِ ۖ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُفْسِدِينَ (77

    اور جو کچھ خدا نے دیا ہے اس سے آخرت کے گھر کا انتظام کرو اور دنیا میں اپنا حصّہ بھول نہ جاؤ اور نیکی کرو جس طرح کہ خدا نے تمہارے ساتھ نیک برتاؤ کیا ہے اور زمین میں فساد کی کوشش نہ کرو کہ اللہ فساد کرنے والوں کو دوست نہیں رکھتا ہے

    [YOUSAF ALI] "But seek, with the (wealth) which Allah has bestowed on thee, the Home of the Hereafter, nor forget thy portion in this world: but do thou good, as Allah has been good to thee, and seek not (occasions for) mischief in the land: for Allah loves not those who do mischief."

    [ PICKTHAL ] But seek the abode of the Hereafter in that which Allah hath given thee and neglect not thy portion of the world, and be thou kind even as Allah hath been kind to thee, and seek not corruption in the earth; lo! Allah loveth not corrupters,

    [ SHAKIR ] And seek by means of what Allah has given you the future abode, and do not neglect your portion of this world, and do good (to others) as Allah has done good to you, and do not seek to make mischief in the land, surely Allah does not love the mischief-makers.

  12. Sura: 53 - an-Najm (The Star) From Ayat: 29 to 30

    فَأَعْرِضْ عَنْ مَنْ تَوَلَّىٰ عَنْ ذِكْرِنَا وَلَمْ يُرِدْ إِلَّا الْحَيَاةَ الدُّنْيَا (29

    لہذا جو شخص بھی ہمارے ذکر سے منہ پھیرے اور زندگانی دنیا کے علاوہ کچھ نہ چاہے آپ بھی اس سے کنارہ کش ہوجائیں

    [YOUSAF ALI] Therefore shun those who turn away from Our Message and desire nothing but the life of this world.

    [ PICKTHAL ] Then withdraw (O Muhammad) from him who fleeth from Our remembrance and desireth but the life of the world.

    [ SHAKIR ] Therefore turn aside from him who turns his back upon Our reminder and does not desire anything but this world's life.

  13. Sura: 53 - an-Najm (The Star) From Ayat: 29 to 30

    ذَٰلِكَ مَبْلَغُهُمْ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ ۚ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ هُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِمَنْ ضَلَّ عَنْ سَبِيلِهِ وَهُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِمَنِ اهْتَدَىٰ (30

    یہی ان کے علم کی انتہا ہے اور بیشک آپ کا پروردگار خوب جانتا ہے کہ کون اس کے راستہ سے بہک گیا ہے اور کون ہدایت کے راستہ پر ہے

    [YOUSAF ALI] That is as far as knowledge will reach them. Verily thy Lord knoweth best those who stray from His Path, and He knoweth best those who receive guidance.

    [ PICKTHAL ] Such is their sum of knowledge. Lo! thy Lord is Best Aware of him who strayeth, and He is Best Aware of him whom goeth right.

    [ SHAKIR ] That is their goal of knowledge; surely your Lord knows best him who goes astray from His path and He knows best him who follows the right direction.

  14. Sura: 57 - al-Hadid (The Iron) Ayat: 27


    پھر ہم نے ان ہی کے نقش قدم پر دوسرے رسول بھیجے اور ان کے پیچھے عیسٰی بن مریم علیہ السّلام کو بھیجا اور انہیں انجیل عطا کردی اور ان کا اتباع کرنے والوں کے دلوں میں مہربانی اور محبت قرار دے دی اور جس رہبانیت کو ان لوگوں نے ازخود ایجاد کرلیا تھا اور اس سے رضائے خدا کے طلبگار تھے اسے ہم نے ان کے اوپر فرض نہیں قرار دیا تھا اور انہوں نے خود بھی اس کی مکمل پاسداری نہیں کی تو ہم نے ان میں سے واقعا ایمان لانے والوں کو اجر عطا کردیا اور ان میں سے بہت سے تو بالکل فاسق اور بدکردار تھے

    [YOUSAF ALI] Then, in their wake, We followed them up with (others of) Our messengers: We sent after them Jesus the son of Mary, and bestowed on him the Gospel; and We ordained in the hearts of those who followed him Compassion and Mercy. But the Monasticism which they invented for themselves, We did not prescribe for them: (We commanded) only the seeking for the Good Pleasure of Allah; but that they did not foster as they should have done. Yet We bestowed, on those among them who believed, their (due) reward, but many of them are rebellious transgressors.

    [ PICKTHAL ] Then We caused Our messengers to follow in their footsteps; and We caused Jesus, son of Mary, to follow, and gave him the Gospel, and placed compassion and mercy in the hearts of those who followed him. But monasticism they invented - We ordained it not for them - only seeking Allah's pleasure, and they observed it not with right observance. So We give those of them who believe their reward, but many of them are evil-livers.

    [ SHAKIR ] Then We made Our messengers to follow in their footsteps, and We sent Isa son of Marium afterwards, and We gave him the Injeel, and We put in the hearts of those who followed him kindness and mercy; and (as for) monkery, they innovated it-- We did not prescribe it to them-- only to seek Allah's pleasure, but they did not observe it with its due observance; so We gave to those of them who believed their reward, and most of them are transgressors.
